[ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem,
8:42am
that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop.
8:43am
tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor such as kid any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options,

8:45am
best chance of getting a phone back from a thief but how likely are you able to find the guy who walked off with it. >> you are walking with your iphone and on a bus you are also risking theft. >> most of our robberies that are occurring in the city involve some sort of a smart phone. >> there were more than 1,000 phone robberies in san francisco from january to august alone. it happened to this man on a muni train. >> he just reached down and grabbed the phone and took off like he was a track star. >> the applications that allow you track the device. >> police recommend and app lie like this one. find my iphone. can it find your phone? we tested it out. two interns took off with our iphone. intern lisa's job is to find it. she logs on to find my iphone. it i was on the our device

makes the alarm goes off on the stolen phone however she doesn't hear any alarm. finally we get a hint. they are inside a coffee shop. now she hits the alarm button again and this time -- >> hello. it is ringing. >> she finds our phone inside a coffee roaster but it required cheating. it's still a worthwhile app. realize the locator isn't all that precise. >> i was running around inside the park looking for them. and they were watching me across the street in the coffee shop. >> find my iphone is a free app, you do need to activate it. android, blackberry and microsoft have tracking apps. they help locate thieves and help you write data from a remote location where your identity won't be stolen along
